Hello everyone. I’m a new grower. Have harvested a half dozen plants. Basically winging it. I’d like to turn this clone into a mother plant. It’s a clone of a Tokyo Snow/Okie from Trustfall. I would appreciate any tips, advice, criticism. Thank you.

I just transplanted it from a solo cup into a five gallon fabric pot

Soil is Promix premium moisture potting mix. I bought it at Lowe’s. I mixed in some perlite.

The nutes that I have are synthetic and are part of the fox farm lineup. big bloom, Cal Mag, grow big, tiger bloom.

She’s in a 3’x3’x5’ tent under a mars hydro tsw 2000 at 25% about 2’ above the plant. There is a small clip on fan and a 4” exahaust fan. Temp is about 75 F RH 60

I mistakenly said 3 x 3 tent but it’s actually 2 x 2. I don’t know if it matters but it’s cool Lol.

I’ve only grown in FoxFarm Ocean forest before, and I know that you can hold off with nutes for like 3-4 weeks But I think this stuff is different.?

about 12 hours after transplant looking pretty good. Thanks for your time.

I dont have room for a mom plant anymore so what i do is take clones, then flower the "mom" and veg the clones while the "mom" flowers out and then the clones are ready to flower when the "mom" is done, and then you can take clones from the clones and keep going, that way you never have to keep a plant around for years on end and have it get sick and die.

So do you plan on taking plenty of cuts off this plant for production or will you be needing only a few cuts every 3 months or so? If you only need her once in awhile you could keep a bonsai mother. Throw her in like a half gal square pot under low light and cut her down until there’s only a few nodes of growth left. Keep cutting her back until you want clones then encourage growth. Once the plant gets hella root bound take it out of the square pot and shave down like an inch of the roots and soil on all 4 sides and the bottom and replant. You can do this over and over in a tiny pot. This will keep your plant small and manageable.

Interestingly there is some variation in cannabinoid and terpene profiles from clones taken from different parts of the same mom. So maybe we should re-define the term for clones? Just a high thought...lol

Something I was thinking of doing haha have been reading up on it actually

In case this is the route you want to go @BB22 there’s a nice read up on the farm already 😁

She is showing her sex. I’m new to this. She’s a clone. She’s the same age as her mother. It’s crazy how this shit works. 🤓
